The X-Men film series boasts action, and lots of it. Throughout the films we see mutant and enemy and mutant beat tirelessly against each other, each devoted to their vision of the roles mutants should take in the world. Also beat upon are at least 238 cars, planes, boats, or other kinds of vehicles, totaling damage at nearly 2 billion dollars.
But lucky for Magneto, who topped out as the most destructive character, there is always the opportunity to do a little car refinancing for any vehicles he may have left unscathed. Unfortunately that doesn’t include three X-Jets, a Japanese bullet train, a handful of military-grade Humvees, a Russian submarine, a Boeing Apache Helicopter, and dozens of civilian vehicles.
Here’s a little bit more of the numbers broken down:
Military/Law Enforcement vehicles damaged amounted to over $320 million, damage to civilian vehicles was over $21 million, and damage to mutant vehicles was nearly $1.5 billion.
The film with the most damage done is X-Men: First Class with just 7 vehicles destroyed amounting to $7.65 million. This compares significantly to the next film with the most damage, X-Men: The Last Stand, in which at least 207 vehicles were damaged or destroyed with costs amounting to $2.5 million.
Just two vehicles were destroyed in X2: X-Men United with costs around a tiny $80,000 in damages.
Heroes, like Professor X and Wolverine, caused just a fourth of the damage, and villains, like Magneto and Pyro, caused the remaining three fourths damage.
Too bad those mutants didn’t take out that auto loan calculator; they would have saved so much money on their car payments but instead are left to pay hefty loan fees on top of retribution for billions of dollars of destroyed vehicles.
